  • I believe God triumphs over Satan/evil-but man doesn't. Free will and all that jazz. If good won all the time the world would be pardise.

  • here's where I find flaw in the statement you posted - if God really did defeat Satan, then why all the BS still about Satan doing things still. so from my side of this, you have 2 options - #1 God won, Satan lost, no more Satan doing things or #2 God didn't win and that's why the battle between God and Satan is still going on.

  • We know the outcome of all of this! However, until then Satan is allowed to 'play' on the Earth.

  • Revelation tells us who wins. Satan wants every battle he can win so he can take as many with him as he possibly can.

  • understand that GOD is almighty. the devil started out as an angel who fell, challenging God for his kingdom. the devil muses God. They actually play games. We are given free will, so that we may be influenced, so as to make the game more intreguing. Under free will & influences of choice by god & the devil...is how the events take place in our lives. its the bubble gum effect...by free will you choose to spit out your bubble gum on the ground, think nothing of it. Later, someone else unknown to you steps in your gum & it sticks. that person get into their car not knowing the gum is on their shoe. as they travel home, they have a car wreck & get killed because the gum stuck to the gas peddle & they couldnt get their other foot on the gas fast enough....understand...some choices you make reflect upon others with out even knowing it.

  • continued from above post...i mean couldnt get their foot on the break fast enough....God & the devil influence you thru free will. God does triumph ONLY if you allow him too...thur your free will/choice...this is a simple explaination...the world of heaven & hell are complicated & very hard for us as humans to understand. there are alot of information we cant process & a lot that has been deliberately left out, because we are quite simple minded in our understandings of the spritual worlds. each religion has their own opinions which also complicate the facts...

  • I think that good and evil balance each other out. Yin and Yang. You can't have one without the other and for every extreme their is a polar opposite.

  • I think God and Satan are one in the same when it comes right down to it, like the about said, you have to have both to have a healthy balance.
